Filled With Joy
Would you say the joy of the Holy Spirit marks your daily life? How are you at work? Could it be that your primary objective is to stay out of trouble? Mike talked about how his goal was to stay out of trouble most days. He didn’t want to do anything that would make Jesus look bad. He was just trying to get through life. Do you have a goal for your spiritual walk? Are you trying to do anything because you follow Jesus?
Do you have goals for your faith and is your life tracking toward those goals? Without goals, without some direction for our lives, we live a life of trying to avoid difficulty. The absence of misery isn’t a very worthwhile goal. Neither is 5:00 PM on Friday.
Your joy in Christ will be related to your goals. Think about where you would like to be spiritually. What would you like to see Jesus do in your career and family? Would you like the joy of worship to extend into your work week? Ask God to show you how to follow him on a moment-by-moment basis and then do what he says. And you will experience more of his joy. You will see him working in your life and the life of others around you and you will be continually filled with joy. Try it out today!
